Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Liberation Party, M Hashim Qureshi lashed out at China for “forcibly” putting Uighur Muslims in concentration camps in Xinjiang and for its aggressive activities in Ladakh.
In an article in The Kashmir Magazine, Qureshi said that China’s activity in Eastern Ladakh is part of its “big expansionist designs”.
“China’s expansionist activity in Eastern Ladakh is part of her big expansionist designs. What is the quantum of freedom allowed to the Muslims and Christians in China is known to the entire world?” he said.
“One cannot help express surprise on this type of mentality. Instead of defending our land against division…we have always volunteered to accept the yoke of slavery of a powerful neighbor,” he added.
Qureshi asserted that Muslim Uighurs are forcibly put in concentration camps in Xinjiang. “Muslim officials are not allowed to grow beards of offer prayers. Mosques cannot raise tall minarets.”
“Under these circumstances, we should mourn the mentality of those who consider Chinese incursion into India a moment of hilarity for them because they are enemies of India,” he exclaimed.
